This flu has had me down for a week, I think I am beginning to feel better, then WAMB I am back to square one. Chills, headache, and a deep cough. But today i fell like I am coming out of the fog.
I had a spurt of energy yesterday so I headed for my sewing room, I added a border to my homespun quilt, and cut out the blocks for the remaining border,by the time I had completed that I felt like I had done a full days worth of chores. I am anxious to finish the piecing on this quilt so I can start the hand quilting. I am going to quilt this one with Perle cotton using the big stitch method.
I did dig out some redwork that I started a few years back, a lot less effort to sit and stitch, I finished the last of the blocks last night. There are total of 12 flower blocks, this was a prestamped panel I believe it was a Alex Anderson design.
I had forgotten how much I enjoyed embroidery work, I guess it is a kin to hand quilting. I rarely sit down with out having some kind of hand work to do,so I was sorry to finish the blocks, Now wishing I had more to work on.
